Our mission is to nurture and discover the potential of individuals; we build characters and confidence that help them make life decisions. Our goal is to make childhood a wonderful and rich experience for every child and guide your children with love and understanding as mentor, NOT just teacher nor tutor.
Mentorhood Math was found in 2009 by Ms Karen & Ms Gigi. Ms Karen possesses a Master of Applied Mathematics (Actuarial Science) and Honours Bachelor of Science in Pure Math & Music from the University of Toronto. Ms Gigi completed her Honours Bachelor of Science in Statistics and Economics from the University of Toronto; she is also a qualified Play Therapist and a certified Financial Quotient Instructor. In the first few years, they helped children mainly focusing on their school work and preparing for exams. They realized that many of their students need help with Math because they didn't have a solid foundation in their early years.
In 2011, the first version of Mentorhood Mathematics was launched. The teaching were based on the Model Drawing Method to help children visualize word problems. It was a great success in helping children improve their Math performance in schools.
In 2012, Mentorhood's first teaching manual was born. More teachers were recruited and trained to teach with our curriculum and the model drawing method. Licensed teachers were teaching in different learning centres (partners) across Hong Kong.
In 2014, Mentorhood Learning Center (Mid-Level West) was started as our first Franchisee.
Early 2016, Mentorhood Mathematics second edition was formed, Creative Mathematics (ages 3-6) and Visible Thinking Mathematics (ages 7-12) were created. Over 200+ Math activities were added into Creative Mathematics Curriculum. We are currently working on our updated teaching system which will allow us to partner with more high quality teachers in the future.
In 2018, Mentorhood is expanding to Canada, branches in Vancouver and Toronto will be opened in Aug 2018. International Math Battle will also take place in the same year.
